No Shift in Workplace Discrimination against Women In Spite Of Major Social Changes

Posted on in Employment

The last couple of decades have seen sweeping social changes in the United States, including marked shifts in favor of acceptance of minorities, older employees, and even gay and lesbians in the workforce. However, when it comes to female employees, there does not seem to have been a major change in attitudes. In fact, women continue to report that they face disadvantages while working, including lower salaries, and less competitive assignments than their male counterparts.

According to a new study conducted by Wall Street Journal and NBC News, women continue to believe that they face serious discrimination in the workforce, not just in terms of the salaries that they earn, but also their prospects for upward mobility.

What is really distressing to San Jose employment lawyers is that these findings are being reported decades after the women's liberation movement and serious progress on a number of other social issues around the country.
As many as 84% of the women in the survey reported that men are still paid more for the same kind of work. Those findings are collaborated by government statistics, which also show that as many as two-thirds of men deny that they're paid more for similar kind of work.

More than 4 in 10 women confirm that they have faced gender discrimination on the job. Both of these statistics are unchanged since the last time a survey like this was conducted back in 1997.

The vast numbers of employment discrimination-related complaints that San Jose workplace discrimination lawyers come across regularly are testament to the fact that there has been little progress in winning equality with male employees, not just in terms of payments, incentives and bonuses, but also in terms of promotions, and scope of assignments.
